Family Reach bridges the gap between hospital and home.

Our Impact

We work directly with more than 400 oncology social workers at hospitals across the country to provide thousands of families in cancer treatment with critical financial assistance. Since 2003, we’ve helped more than 45,000 individuals from 49 states.

Our growing network of supporters made it possible for Family Reach to assist more than five times as many individuals in 2016 than in 2012, an astonishing 520% increase in five years.
